To Install the Pharos Print Queue on Your Laptop
This must done while physically in the Law School.
Download the VprintMac file to your desktop by clicking here.
Open the disk image that was downloaded (Mac Package).
Follow the instructions to install the software and enter your computer password when prompted. (Detailed instructions can be found here)
There should now be a printer called VPrint. When you print to it, you will be prompted for your Main Campus username (ex. jdoe01).
To print your job, simply walk up to any Pharos enabled printer and either tap your wildcard, or login with your Main Campus login. Choose your job and hit print.
Jobs will remain in the Pharos Queue for 24 hours, then they will be deleted. You will only be charged if a job prints. Print jobs will be deducted from your Pharos quota first. Each page costs $0.08 to print single-sided and $0.12 to print double sided. When your Pharos quota is depleted, jobs will then be debited from your Wildcard account. You can add money to your Wildcard via the NovaBucks system, found here. By default, all print jobs will be sent in duplex mode (they will utilize both sides of a sheet of paper). To change this, click start, printers & faxes, then right-click on the printer named "VLS Print' and choose "printing preferences". On the Finishing Tab, Change the Print Style to 1-sided printing, then click Apply, then OK.
If you have any issues installing Pharos, please contact the Villanova Law School TechZone.
